What is Rice Bran
Rice is a plant. The outer layer of the grain (bran) and the oil made from the bran are used for medicine. Rice bran oil is popular as a “healthy oil” in Japan, Asia, and particularly India. Be careful not to confuse rice bran with other forms of bran such as oat and wheat bran.
Where Does Rice Bran Comes From
Rice bran is the main source of rice bran oil, which contains lipids, proteins, tocopherols, and bioactive compounds. Rice bran is obtained from paddy rice in a multistage process, after harvest. The grains are submitted to the milling process, where, first, the kernel is separated from the hull (dehulling)
